tv Early Start With John Berman and Christine Romans CNN August 18, 2014 2:00am-3:01am PDT
violence in the streets of ferguson, missouri. tear gas, molotov cocktails and gunfire. protesters furious over the shooting of unarmed teenager, michael brown. national guard troops called to the area. we have the latest overnight and new details. details about how brown died. we are live in ferguson, missouri. good morning and welcome to "early start." i'm christine romans. it is monday, august 18th. it is 5:00 a.m. in the east. let's begin with this breaking news chaos in ferguson, missouri. police in riot gear, clashing with protesters hours before a curfew that is now in effect. tear gas, smoke canisters and rubber bullets used on a crowd. police had no choice but to respond after molotov cocktails were thrown at police and gunshots fired at police. it's the most intense since the
shooting of michael brown a week ago. now, we are learning the results of a private autopsy. the diagram found that he was shot six times, twice in the head, four times in the right arm. i want to go live to ferguson now and bring in george howell. is it calm on the streets behind you? >> reporter: i think it ice important to ask that question. is this is city under siege? the answer is no. this is a very long street. down that way, for about a mile stretch, really, that is ground zero. that is where you find these continued protests. protesters meeting with police. the situations that continue to generate into violence. what we saw, again, the other night, another situation of great unrest. again, it started as a peaceful protest. many people who came out to make sure their voices were heard. as you mentioned, that autopsy report, you can imagine that
inflamed the feelings of a lot of people out here who believe what happened to michael brown was an injustice. again, started as a peaceful protest. according to police, protesters got too close to the command post. there was a situation where two people were shot, then police used that approach. they came together and basically walked slowly, but surely down the streets to move the protesters. they used tear gas, rubber bullets and smoke canisters to do so. you are hearing two opinions of what is happening here. some are saying the police are too heavy handed. they are coming down the streets with too much force. then you hear the opposite. just a few people in the crowd. a lot of people come out to protest peacefully. just a few people spoil it for everyone else. it seems, for the police, they are dammed if they do and dammed if they don't. for the protesters, they want
their voices heard. each time, when people commit illegal acts and throw molotov cocktails back at the crowd and back at police, it inflames the situation. i want you to hear both sides of the story from police and from protesters. take a listen. >> there were multiple reports of molotov cocktails being thrown. police were shot at. makeshift barricades were set up to block police. bottles and rockets were thrown at police. based on these conditions, i had no alternative but to elevate the level of our response. for those who claim the curfew is what led to tonight's violence, i will remind you, it was this incident began before 8:30, three and a half hours before the curfew was to have started last night.
>> we got to the shopping mall down at the end of lucas. they started throwing tear gas and smoke bombs and lots of them and told us -- >> we were trying to run away. >> and told us to evacuate and a young lady got hurt. it's unacceptable. not one, many. we were peaceful. we were peaceful. >> reporter: that's the thing, there are a lot of people who come out to basically protest peacefully. they want their message heard. hundreds and thousands of people come together to protest peacefully. again, when you see the small number that according to police see molotov cocktails, they throw rocks and bottles to police. they have to use force. the images you see looks like a police state. again, from a small number of people, we are seeing basically the nights generate into violence.
again, a long stretch of street here. it's a one-mile stretch here where it seems to be ground zero, repettively, night after night where people clash with police. >> it's interesting because of the tactics. they are going to bring in the national guard. how are they going to do things differently if they are firing at the national guard, what is the response going to be. you mentioned two people were shot. we are assuming they were shot by protesters, not police. >> reporter: that's important. thank you for helping make that distinction. according to police, the two people were not in the crowd. remember, a week ago, i was in the crowd as well. i heard shots fired. we had to take cover. shots fired in front of us and behind us. my colleague, steve, the other night in the same position. you just hear shots fired around you. you have to get out of the way. that is the situation for people, the protesters, we understand, the two people who were shot. >> steve was telling us, you
know, there were families, young families pushing kids in strollers in what started as a peaceful march. you have been hearing shots in the crowd night after night thachlt is so frightening. we know that school is not going to start today. this should be the first day of school but they are not going to start school, george, because it's not secure yet. >> reporter: and, you know, certainly it's unfortunate. again, we are talking about one street. >> right. >> reporter: beside that street you have neighborhoods, you have families, you have kids trying to sleep at night. again, we understand the kids will not go to school for another night because of the continuing violence. >> thank you george. keep us posted on any developments. again, it is calm behind you at 4:00 in the morning. a missouri governor trying to keep the peace. he is, as i said, deploying the
national guard in the wake of the clashes between police and protesters. the violent acts are a disturbance to michael brown and his memory and the people who yearn for justice to be served and feel safe in their homes. missouri highway patrol captain, ron johnson. don lemon is looking at that. >> reporter: overnight here in ferguson, missouri you see a heavy police presence. this is called a hot zone down to the command center. the command center where chief ron johnson, the head of this response held a press conference sounding tired, frustrated and embarrassing to him because he is the man they put in charge because they believed he related to the community. he comes from this community. he's used to dealing with police profiling and discrimination. now, a few bad actors made it
worse for him. at first, he took the large tactical units off the streets. he didn't want people pointing guns in people's faces. now, he's having to go back to that. it's not only embarrassing for him, but embarrassing for the family of michael brown as well. taking the focus of a police force that doesn't necessarily relate to the people it is serving and protecting and off a young man who was gunned down in the middle of the street. don lemon, cnn, ferguson, missouri. now, a strategic dam that supplies power to most of the country. air strikes that included bomber jets for the first time, helping kurdish fighters on the ground retake part of the mosul dam. president obama in a letter to congress says the dam is critical to the security of the u.s. embassy. anna is following developments.
she is live for us from mosul. hi, anna. >> reporter: hi, christine. we are 15 kilometers from the dam where the battle between the peshmerga and special forces is taking place. peshmerga says they are within three kilometers of seizing that dam. they are hoping to push through last night. that did not happen. the militants dug in. they are hoping to be successful today. now, we have been here on the ground now for just over an hour and there's artillery set up, rockets. certainly, they are heeding the enemy line, which is not far away. also machine guns fired. certainly the problems they are facing in their advance toward the dam is all the ieds and land mines the militants put down.
one of the trucks we were with hit an ied. this is a major hazard as they push forward. certainly, christine, they are really pushing back isis. there's no doubt about it. isis is in retreat, whether they can push them out of the dam facility, a very important piece of infrastructure for iraq. that remains to be seen. >> what do we know about the u.s. role in slamming the militants with these bomber jets, you know, targeting the militants? >> reporter: we haven't heard fighter jets or drones since we have been here. certainly yesterday, they were flying overhead constantly. we know there were many air strikes yesterday and over the weekend. we saw the evidence of that in humvees and other vehicles isis used. american vehicles and weaponry that, of course, had been seized by the iraqi military that isis
is using. peshmerga say they need to be better equipped. they are fighting the isis militants with superior weaponry. certainly the air strikes changing the situation on the ground, allowing the peshmerga forces to take the fight to isis militants knowing they have that cover, if you like, from the skies. obviously, they need to be careful around the dam facility because it is just so vital. >> anna for us this morning in mosul. thanks, anna. the clock ticking on the gaza cease-fire. the truce is set to expire in less than 13 hours. israeli and palestinian negotiators are in cairo talking about prolonging the peace. the demands of the two sides won't be easy to reconcile. the palestinian delegation demands an end to the economic
blockade. fred pleitgen is there with more. there's not much wiggle room in teen. >> reporter: it's very difficult. if there's no agreement, they are willing to go back to hostilities that would be devastating not just for the people in gaza, but on the israeli side as well if the rocket attacks start again. the israelis have a lot of forces on the border with gaza. hamas has a rocket arsenal that can be dangerous. there is the potential for renewed conflict, if in fact, there is no cease-fire. you said it, the big issues are economic concerns for the palestinians, security concerns for the israelis. the people in gaza say they want the blockade on gaza to be lifted completely. the israelis have massive security concerns with that. hamas might try to smuggle more rocket parts than they have in
the past. cement and steal could be used for bunker protection. they want a deal where they get legitimate security from hamas. the big thing they want is they want hamas to disarm completely. that's something hamas says is not in the cards at all at this point. very, very difficult position to reconcile. one thing we have to keep an eye on is possible discord within the palestinian delegation. does the delegation of hamas want the same thing as many of the other negotiators there. certainly a difficult situation. there's three possible outcomes to this. the cease-fire could fall apart, we could see additional hostilities tonight. there could be an extension of the truce or a broader agreement that would see some of the points between the two sides reconci reconciled. a lot of people here in gaza
very nervous, very anxious to see what's going to happen next. we will know in the next 12, 13 hours whether they are going to reach an agreement. it's a very, very tense time here in gaza. >> tense indeed. fred pleitgen in gaza for us. thank you, fred. we are going to follow the night in missouri. angry crowds demonstrating against the controversial police shooting of michael brown. you are going to hear from protesters caught in the middle of it all. that's ahead. how about over there? what does it mean to have an unlimited mileage warranty on a certified pre-owned mercedes-benz? what does it mean to drive as far as you want... for up to three years... and be covered? it means your odometer... is there to record... the memories. during the mercedes-benz certified pre-owned sales event now through september 2nd, you'll get complimentary pre-paid maintenance and may qualify for a two-month payment credit. only at your authorized

breaking news overnight. chaos in the streets of ferguson, missouri. police firing tear gas and rubber bullets. the national guard being deployed to the area. and more on the deadly shooting of michael brown. what a new autopsy reveals. we are live in ferguson with all the angles. welcome back to "early start." i'm christine romans. 29 minutes past the hour. we welcome viewers in the u.s. and around the world. violent confrontations between police and protesters in ferguson, missouri. just ahead of the second night of a curfew, police in riot gear firing tear gas, smoke canisters and rubber bullets to disperse a crowd. police were responding to
civilians shot in the crowd. vandalism and protesters firing shots at police. we are learning that results of a private autopsy requested by the family of michael brown found he was shot six times, twice in the head, four times in the right arm. cnns george howell is live in ferguson with all the latest on this, both the tear gas fired on the crowds and the latest developments about the autopsy. george, bring us up to speeds. >> reporter: christine, good morning to you. you talk about the tear gas here, you can see an unignited tear gas canister thrown at the crowd. police used rubber bullets and smoke canisters to dispurse the crowd. they did this because two people were shot in the crowd, not by police. i remember a week ago when all this started, shots were fired in front of us. you have to take cover.
the same happened to my colleague, steve, tonight, a situation where you have to get out of the way. you don't know where the shots are coming from. that happened, police had to move through the streets slowly to move protesters out of the way. two opinions about what is happening here. you hear from police they have no choice. you know, when a person is shot in the crowd, if the protesters get too close to their command center, according to police, they a throwing molotov kak tails back at officers, they have to use force. in some ways, dammed if they do, and dammed if they don't. protesters are saying police are acting too heavy handedly. it started as a peaceful protest. hundreds of people making it known an injustice happened to michael brown. a few bad apples destroy the whole thing.
take a listen. >> there were reports of molotov cocktails being thrown. police were shot at. makeshift barricades were set up to block police. bottles and rockets were thrown at police. based on these conditions, i had no alternative but to elevate the level of our response. for those who claim that the curfew is what led to tonight's violence, i will remind you, this incident began before 8:30, three and a half hours before the curfew was to have started last night. >> we was marching peacefully. we were in front of the command center, running with our hands up and saying to the police, our hands are up, don't shoot.
all of a sudden, they turned around and started shooting tear gas. >> reporter: there's a lot of outrage out here, especially when you consider this autopsy. this new autopsy released from the private pathologist hired by the family. brown was shot at least six times. a lot of people are upset about that. we are learning details about the autopsy. as you can imagine, during the day, people come out to vent, to protest. people are outraged by this. the answers are slow to come by police. we have learned information about michael brown before the shooting. police released this video that showed him in a store, involved in a strong arm robbery. we haven't seen the details leading up to the shooting. that's what people wapt. as long as the information is slow to come, you get the sense people are growing angrier about
that. we expect more protests today. hopefully, we won't see what we saw last night happen again. >> anger has not faded. every night, it gets a little worse. no school, they are not going to start -- today would have been the start of the school year. no school if they want to wait until this dies down. >> seems to be a very unfortunate consequence. you talk about the fact that -- this is a very long street. we are talking one mile, about one mile of this very long street that seems to be ground zero. we see images that look like a police state, but putting it into context, one mile of this town. you have homes on either side of that street, beside the businesses. it's where families are sleeping and kids are trying to get a good night sleep. they will not be able to go to school for another day simply because the sides don't want to
budge. police feel they have to come through with force. some protesters come together peacefully, hundreds, sometimes thousands who come together peacefully. again, night after night, a small group that leads to chaos. >> george in ferguson for us. thank you so much. we'll see if there will be a change in tactics by police. the governor trying to keep the peace. jay nixon saying he's deploying the national guard. he says the violent acts are a disservice to the family of michael brown and his memory and to the people of this community who yearn for justice to be served and feel safe in their own homes. the chaos is felt hard for the man leading the response, ron johnson. cnns don lemon taking a look at that for us. >> reporter: overnight here in ferguson, missouri, this is what
you see, a very heavy police presence. this is called the hot zone here all the way down to the command center, the command center with chief ron johnson held a press conference sounding tired, frustrated and no doubt, embarrassing. embarrassing to him because he is the man they put in charge because they believe he related to the community. he comes from the community. he's used to police profiling and discrimination. now, a few bad actors made it worse for him. at first, he took the large tactical units off the street. he didn't want people pointing guns in people's faces. now he is having to go back to that. it's not only embarrassing for him, but the family of michael brown as well. a few bad actors taking the focus of what it should be, a police force that doesn't necessarily relate to the people it is serving and protecting and
off a young man who was gunned down in the middle of the street. don lemon, cnn, ferguson, missouri. >> thanks for that. now to iraq and the battle for a strategic dam. a dozen air strikes to help kurdish troops fighting for control of the mosul dam. meantime, president obama in a letter to congress explaining the strikes saying the mosul dam is critical to the security of the u.s. embassy there. anna is following developments. she is live in mosul. do we know the progress the troops have been able to make? have they been able to secure the dam? >> reporter: contrary to the reports in the media, the peshmerga have yet to get full control of the dam. there's a fierce fire fight taking place inside that
complex, inside that dam site. he is confident that within the next few hours, it will be in control of that facility. i want to show you, christine, where we are. we are less than 15 kilometers from where the battle is raging. they won't let us closer because of security problems. there's obviously a great deal of fighting going around here. the village, which you can see over my shoulder, my camera is zooming in. you can see the smoke rising. it was hit by heavy artillery earlier today. isis militants also detonating explosives as they retreated. this has been a major problem for the peshmerga as they have pushed back those isis militants. in their path, these terrorists have been leaving, littering the area with ieds.
this is where we are. we are hoping to get closer to mosul dam in the coming hours as security allows. they are, as i say, hopeful of securing the largest hydroelectric dam in the country. much of the country, definitely mosul and baghdad. it was a major blow when they lost it. they need it back. for security reasons and also because it provides so much power to the country. christine? >> anna, as part of the isis business model to take over the important resources of the country so they can take more control of what's happening there in iraq. thank you so much for that. we'll continue to follow that with you this morning. breaking news overnight, protests in the streets of ferguson, missouri. police launching tear gas after peaceful protests turned violent. dramatic video ahead. you've become deaf to the sound of your own sniffling.
